17. 04. 03

A very large oil tanker is presently calling Port of Karlshamn at the quay of Uniper - Karlshamn Kraft power plant. The vessel m/v Zaliv Baikal has a dead weight of 106.808 tons (cargo capacity), is 244 m long, 42 m wide and with a draft of more than 13 metres. The area of the deck corresponds to a larger socker field. Zaliv Baikal is discharging heavy fuel oil from Ust-Luga in Russia and is among one of the largest vessels that have ever called Port of Karlshamn, which is one of the largest petroelum ports in Sweden.
